Suf-FISH-ient

I'm a fish  Blub blub blub Don’t ask I'm trying something different  Thinking outside my box  It was kind of cramped in there anyways.  Wait a minute I'm a fish  Fishes don’t have boxes  They swim the ocean with ease  Sometimes we call them seas So seize the day  And be a fish  If you [...]

Fighting Words

Fighting Words

This isn’t what I planned on posting. I'm not feeling happy with what I was going to share, and to be honest the day is attempting to kick me in the teeth. As I started to get tearful, hope and joy began to run the other way. Get back here!!! Stop being cowards!!!! Okay, that [...]

Soar

Soar

I wrote this poem for one of my best friends a couple of years back. I went looking for it because I felt that I really needed this reminder myself. The funny thing is that Chris and I have reversed roles. He is much happier and content than he was when we met. Wait a [...]

I wondered if I should title this one "Organize." My thoughts are so all over the place. It feels as if my heart is all over the place too.  I'm scrambling this morning for what kind of photo to use for this post! Ever been there? Oh, I already have a photo. Never mind! However, [...]

Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor

Adrift Out of touch But not out of sight My needs are met Even in the fight. Worn Thrown by waves But not out of hope When the sea's rough You settle my boat. So I won't forget Your faithfulness  You deserve my praise  And nothing less I won't cease to thank you  For all [...]

Setbacks

Setbacks

When I came back from the hospital I knew there would be some setbacks, but I didn't want to get discouraged, so I sort of swept that thought under the rug. This doesn’t always (or often) work, but it did this time, likely because I was thinking about setbacks and patience before I had my [...]

The Same Sky

The Same Sky

Looking up at the same sky Watching my eagle soar Not a clue what comes next Or what the future has in store. Dreaming Dreading Hoping I'll soar too Praying  Forgetting  The sky still turns blue.  Tina S.W. June 24, 2020 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount [...]

When Andrew was denied entry to the hospital he was sure that this would be a problem for me, so he spoke up. I didn't want there to be any problems. I knew things had to be this way, so I said to him, "It's Okay."  It wasn't okay. I was okay in that moment, [...]
